Green List (high evidence)

XYLT2 is associated with a phenotype on OMIM and probably associated with a phenotype on Gene2Phenotype. There are >3 unrelated cases of patients with Spondyloocular Syndrome who have cataracts who have different variants in the XYLT2 gene. Therfore, there is enough evidence for this gene to be green.
